and '93 when clinton worked with newt gingrich. we have examples of presidential leadership. obama is pathetic. this is awful. this doesn't solve any problem at all. when i listen to the senator toomey and senator johnson i think we know what is going to happen now. it is going to pass the senate in the next 24 hours. go to the house. and i spoke to a couple of house members, republicans, who will be he given permission from boehner to do what? vote against it. they are going to get all of the democrats, 20, 30, 35 republicans, it is going to pass. the republicans won't be primaried in the next election by other tea party members. so the train is on the track and as an american it sickens me to watch my government not work and to watch a president who is pathetic and not solve the problem. >> sean: actually i'm hearing another story as well. and this s what -- and joe i did speak to someone that was in the meeting i'm sure the white house will be glad to hear that tonight and the impression that this individual got coming out of the meeting is the following. that the president want

president reagan and deal with the spending? >> it depends if he turns into bill clinton or remains barack obama. clinton understood his legacy, was what was important and he would be remembered as somebody who was good on the economy, as a democrat. guess what? he wasn't a typical democrat. he was forced to change. a lot of it had to do with the fact that the congress changed. we have divided government. if the president wants the same old, same old, he will get t. the republicans won't cave. it's equal branchings of government. they control two-thirds and it takes three to tango, the senate, white hussein. >> eric: terrific debate. >> heather: who is leading in the tango, that's what we don't know. congressional leaders are trying to come up with that deal, with less than two days before massive tax hikes and spending cuts kick in and small businesses are already being affected. companies have no idea how much more they are going to owe uncle sam next year. that is affecting how they are doing business right now. we have those details from the new york city newsroom. >> reporter: many sm

with income below $450,000. all income above those levels would be taxed at a clinton era top tax rate of 39.6%. and capital gains taxes above those amounts would also be increased up to 20% up from 15%. the deal is also said to include a permanent fix for the alternative minimum tax, and extends unemployment insurance for another year for two million americans. >>> there is some grumbling about the proposed deal from labor. in the last hour, richard trumka of the afl-cio tweeted the following -- we can't set the stage for further destabilizing hostage-taking from -- in the form of another debt ceiling crisis and another sequester crisis. joining me now from capitol hill by phone is nbc's kelly o'donnell. kelly, tell what's the latest is that you're hearing on this deal. >> this is a major breaking development, milissa. we have learned from multiple sources who have been directly involved in negotiations that they have reach and agreement in principle between the white house and senate leaders. of course, this will still need to be voted on by members in both the senate and house. but this i

's the story, tax increases under mr. bush and surpluses under mr. clinton tax increases as far as the eye can see under mr. obama. >> when do the spending cuts happen, sarah? >> never. >> and you often see the tax increases kick in and in the health care law, and spending never gets cut. >> i think you need to look where the spending goes, provide preventive care. and we saw 80 million access preventative care and that's a net savings for the entire health care system passed on to all of us. >> how have job cuts we've seen the medical device makers, they're sounded the horn about them. how does it help the broad economy though? >> what you're seeing is readjusting of the economy. most of this tax money comes out of those making 250,000 or mo more, an increase on those individuals. at the same time that we're finding out here on capitol hill about a decrease on those making 250 or less, so, majority of americans. when we have this increase on a very small portion, we see that those folks are welcoming this increase, a poll released the day before christmas put through american express and the
amendment. really the religious freedom restoration act. signed by president clinton. it says that persons if they have any religious rights violate and they are can challenge that the government has a high burden to overcome any kind of burden to your free exercise. they use the word persons there but didn't define it if you go to the regular definition of persons in the congressional code. corporations, companies, associations they are all includeded on or abouts a closely held business their religious rights are violated. individuals have no constitutional right to work at these places. you know what you are getting into. if you apply for the job. you are working there now. haven't heard of any individuals complaining. that's a separate situation that could come down the line possibly. though i don't expect it. this is just b. just basic religious freedom not asking for much here thanks for being here. as i said a very important precedent. let me know. does this violate hobby lobby's religious freedom let me know what you think at twitter dave briggs tv. college kid tossed in the slamme
is to make a deal now. because it will be harder for them to deal after the clinton tax rates all come back. they also realize they're probably going to take most of the blame. but on the democratic side, there is a real interest in protecting all of those vulnerable people, plus the middle class people on the amt. and the last thing president obama wants is something that will stop what looks like a reasonably steady economic growth that we're having right now. this coming year could be a very good year for us if we don't let all this political nonsense get in the way. >> it's hard to imagine how it doesn't. you look at the record, and we talked about it, of this congress. fewer bills passed of any since they've been keeping records. 219, the previous he was 313 bills that got through congress. and a lot of them are basically, you know, naming a post office. and at the same time, it sounds like, tell me if you think something else is going on, this is going to be the narrowest of possible deals. tax rates are going to stay the same for people making 250, 400 or maybe $500,000 a year or les
on the screen? >> i produced a segment of the millennial celebration for the clinton white house. during that time i convened a think tank including steven ambrose and burns and invited doris and she told me she was writing a book about lincoln's presidency. at that moment, i said, are the film rights available? that day, i said are they available? i always wanted to do something on lincoln but not until i knew doris was the one to put it down on paper i threw my hat into the ring at that point. >> "saving private ryan" defined world war ii for people who didn't live through it. this moment will define lincoln and the 13th amendment. what's your next project? >> i hope lincoln never stops knocking doaround in my head, a don't want to take the film coat off. i am getting back into science fiction. not a reaction to history. this has been a deep passion for me. now that it's almost ready to come out, my next film this is complete opposite of this in terms of tone and genre. >> what do you watch when you're at home? have a favorite series? watch "homeland?" >> i watch "homeland" my wife and
of math. of president clinton calling it arithmetic. you need a majority. why are you trying to make it more complicated than it is. >> is mitch mcconnell going to save the day? >> i don't know about that, but let me take issue. the republican conference in the house is very conservative. we are seeing a very conservative conference that may not coming to to vote on something, even if nancy pelosi can corral the democrats, they need to pick off republicans. we don't know if any of them would vote for something like this. john boehner is ready to strike a deal. i'm not sure many others are. in the senate we have seen a number of conservative republicans saying they would vote. >> 20 republican votes? >> at this point it's very hard to say. i think john boehner would probably be trying to go in that direction if he could. we haven't seen enough house republicans come out yet and say they would support tax increases. if you have tom coal who broke with his party leadership and the party ranks about three weeks ago or so. we haven't seen enough say they would. i don't know that that's th

day in the senate. >> all right. good luck. >> thank you. >>> we will talk about hillary clinton who is getting set to get back to work next week. the question is not if but when the gop will counter the 2016 talk. we will discuss that just ahead on "now." >>> perhaps an ominous sign for democrats, some republicans are looking past the fiscal cliff entirely and getting ready for the next fight. senator bob corker spoke moments ago on capitol hill. >> we immediate to do something in the 4 1/2 to $5 trillion range. so we can begin this year with this and in the rear view mirror and our economy really has the opportunity to take off. i think it is apparent that on these -- december 29 without anything that's bold in place, that's probably not going to happen. so, unfortunately, for america, the next line in the sand will be the debt ceiling. secretary geithner sent up a letter. it is probably around mid march action has to be taken. >> we are going to keep an eye on that. he will keep talking. we will bring you the highlights. first, though, this is going to be pretty hot. we have singe
